Welcome to COCO's Kitchen!

Anyone who has been to a Japanese restaurant might think that the Japanese cuisine is "so different" from what they are familiar with. Traditional dishes, such as sashimi or sushi, might be too adventurous, may seem to be too difficult to prepare. It is not easy if you are not living in Japan where every supermarket carries extremely fresh raw fish prepared by professionals. I myself am always careful to choose a store to pick up fish.

And I must tell you that we don't go for these traditional dishes everyday. Our diet is more varied than ever, having been influenced by Western, Chinese, Korean, Indian, and other styles of food which are particularly popular among younger generations and families with children.

What I would like to introduce in this blog are just some simple-everyday-recipes served at dinner table in an ordinary Japanese household, using ingredients you can find at your local stores. Some call it "fusion" Japanese.

Simply add some soy sauce when you marinate your chicken. You will be surprised how much this exotic liquid goes with western cooking ingredients, such as wine, olive oil and more! Make your own Teriyaki sauce with red wine! Sounds crazy? Well, I'll tell you the secret...

Pray for JAPAN☆Please share this with your friends.

It IS so POWERFUL. And it is NOT YET yesterday's news for us.

Although I'll try to post English translation of the song, here's a translation of the text at the end of the song:

April 11, 2011
Just one month after
the Great Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami,
The Futaba Nursery School reopens
amidst the ruins of Kesennuma City.

The sixty six children at the school
had been led to higher ground,
none of them crying in panic or fear.
From above they watched
as their town was overpowered by the tsunami.

Today, the cheerful voices of these same children
can be heard throughout this same town.
Forty eight of the sixty six children
remain enrolled at the school.

According to the school principal, Sugano-sensei:
"The smiles returning to the faces of our children
give us the strength to hope.
We must continue to encourage
the young parents who walk
with these children along the path to recovery."

Sorry! Under construction!
